Alison Genest: A Dracut native with deep roots in town
(Part 1 of a 7-part series)
Like so many of us, I was born and raised here and I care about our townspeople, our community and our future.
From the time I was a small child, my parents taught me the importance of hard work, honesty and giving back to our community.
My grandparents, Jan and Jadwiga Leczynski, emigrated from Poland in the early 1900s, establishing the family farm on Parker Road. My mother, Elvina Leczynski, a first-generation American who was raised on the farm with her six brothers and one sister, instilled in me a strong love for the land, for freedom and for our country. My dad, Bill Estabrook, Sr., served as a Dracut firefighter for 35 years. My parents worked hard to raise my brother, Billy, and me.
Coming from a farming family, I have a deep respect for nature and I take our stewardship of the land very seriously. I care about preservation, conservation and making sure things are done the right way. While looking to the future, I want to be sure we preserve Dracut’s strong agricultural heritage.
